Birmingham based Hannah Brown situates within the indie category in new single “Hate Myself” whereas past tracks have featured a more folk, singer-songwriter approach. Since debuting her new band at London’s Notting Hill Arts Club in 2018, the songstress has been invited to support international supporting artists and secured her own headline shows. Her first release with her new band ‘Further Away’ gained a huge recognition from the BBC, and there’s no doubt that “Hate Myself” will follow in it’s shadow.
Released 20th September, Hannah’s ‘Hate Myself’ takes a plunge straight to the heart with it’s honesty. Detailing the struggles of self esteem, self worth and the often tiring impact that socialising can have, the track’s realisation is that it’s all a choice. Choosing not to hate herself and sticking up two fingers to ‘friends’ who have played along with negative love, there’s a slight touch of social comparison too. Social media has been grand to connect with people, but for people who are struggling already, it has actually made mental health struggles harder to get through. Influenced by the likes of Paramore, Our Girl and Aurora, the arrangement nudges pop rock noughties legends Avril Lavigne and Kelly Clarkson. Overall, the single is a blessing in disguise and a ‘go to song’ to show your closed ones.
